Republicans Celebrate Mueller Findings: ‘Clock Has Finally Struck Midnight on the Russian Collusion Fantasy’

The special investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia has ended, and Republicans are celebrating the results.

The report from special counsel Robert Bueller found no evidence of President Donald Trump working with Russia during the 2016 election and laid to rest the collusion narrative that Democratic lawmakers have pushed. Republicans are now rejoicing after supporting the president through the investigation.

Here are some GOP reactions to the report:

“This total vindication of the President of the United States and our campaign should be welcomed by every American who cherishes the truth and the integrity of our elections,” Vice President Mike Pence said.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) pointed out that everyone should be celebrating the news but did say he would push for the entire report to be released to the public.

“Americans of all background should be happy that AG Barr’s principal conclusions from Mueller’s report suggest no criminality between the Trump campaign and Russia,” Amash said.

House Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), an outspoken supporter of Trump, released a statement about the report, saying that Democrats’ allegations against the president were finally proved wrong.

“As we go forward, it’s time for Democrats to put aside their partisan agenda of attacking this President and instead focus on addressing the real issues facing the American people,” Cheney’s statement read.

However, some Republicans instead chose to focus on the issues with the investigation and how much time and money was spent to prove the president was innocent.

“These statements were lies. The people who spread these lies owe President Trump and the American people an apology,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) said.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) claimed in his statement that the conclusion could be trusted due to the unlimited access that Mueller and his team had during the investigation.

“Furthermore, the nearly unlimited scope, resources and subpoena power of the Special Counsel has allowed his team to fully pursue any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation. This case is closed,” McCarthy said.

Congressional Democrats will continue their investigations into the 2016 election as well as Trump’s business practices, yet this may only hurt their chances of holding their majority due to focusing on something that has already been resolved.

I agree. It is a day to celebrate when Americans are informed that our President is not wittingly a Russian agent. In my 67 yrs, I can honestly say we have not celebrated that before.
